Maria Castiglione, Staff Veterinarian

My dream of becoming a veterinarian started at the age of 6. A few years later, I knew that I wanted to do my training at Cornell. With lots of hard work, a very supportive family and some amazing role models, my dream came true. The path to becoming a veterinarian and practice owner required an incredible amount of dedication, long, mentally and physically intense days and many sacrifices. Financially, the road was hard. Student loans, business loans, and property loans all weighed heavily on me. During the first two years of practice ownership, I took no salary, worked 7 days a week and had only 2 employees. For 12 years, I worked without an associate and took a rare day off for veterinary conferences. Fortunately, the practice grew and allowed me to hire an associate and additional staff members. It was hard to find an associate who shares my compassion for our patients, dedication to an intense career and a love of the relationship I share with my clients…. I am very fortunate to now have a team of associates who are amazingly dedicated, caring and intelligent.

Balancing a professional veterinary career and a personal life is not easy and I am very fortunate to have a wonderful, caring and UNDERSTANDING husband! In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, my kids (the four legged Schnauzer kind), traveling, playing golf and driving super cars and race cars at the track.

I am grateful to all of the wonderful clients that have put their trust in me over the years. I love taking care of your kids and enjoy being able to use my training to help them stay healthy!
